Ruth from Kenya on Yesterday
Shhhhh! Do not wake her up! Ruth was so peaceful when we got to work today and when we decided to take her picture while she was sleeping, her mum went ahead to try and wake her up. We urged her not to wake her up because sleep is good for the healing process both physically and mentally.

Ruth is doing well, she did not cry at night after her surgery, but her bedmate was in a lot of pain and was crying the whole night so she did not sleep very well. She finally fell asleep in the morning and this meant that Ruth and everybody else in her cubicle could sleep, that's why she looks very peaceful! Thank you for your continued support in terms of prayers and in kind for her healing!

Ruth went into the operating room with a smile on her face! She was ready for the surgery and had nothing holding her back. She however got a bit feisty as the anesthesiologist was trying to get her to sleep, but she explained the importance of the procedure and Ruth relaxed a bit. The surgery didn't take very long and was successful.

We are praying that Ruth won't have too much pain when she wakes up and that her recovery will be as smooth as all the other times she has had surgery. Please friends, remember to say just a simple prayer for Ruth, for her healing and restoration!

God works in ways we cannot understand as human beings and Ruth's case is a perfect example of such. When we first met her in December last yer she could not walk or move around a lot except if she had a wheelchair. She struggled with this because she is very playful and couldn't stand the sight of other kids playing without her.

Today, Ruth came back for yet another procedure and we are so happy about all the things God has done for her and is continuing to do. Her mum says she is very happy because of all the improvements she can see in her daughter. We were particularly happy because Ruth can stand on her feet without struggling like she used to before treatment. She has a beautiful and resilient heart and we are grateful to God for that!

Ruth has had two surgeries at CURE before, and now she is here to have the third. She still has to go through at least three more and we hope and pray that she will feel God's presence with her throughout this process. Ruth's mum is very excited because she can see all the changes her daughter is going through and she thanks God for everything. Please friends, do not stop praying for Ruth. She is a little girl with big dreams! Together, we can help her accomplish them!

Natasha from Kenya on Aug 14, 2017
Natasha does not need casting anymore! It's now time to wear braces and move on to the next step of her healing process. She had her braces fit and we are hopeful that she will benefit from them. We are supposed to see Natasha again in three weeks, but her mum has a very crucial commitment for that day so we will see them after four weeks. Natasha and her mum are doing very well and we even joked about Natasha being a local tourist because she doesn't like it when her mum is seated. She wants her to always be on the move and when she is not, she cries her lungs out!

Agnes is just so adorable! When she came in today she was eating a sausage and when we deiced to take a picture of her, she gave us this amazing facial expression. It is interesting how she was able to bite and chew the sausage yet she has not yet grown any teeth! Agnes still has to wear braces and today she got new ones because she had already outgrown the previous ones!

Stephen from Kenya on Aug 14, 2017
Stephen was not accompanied by his grandma today. However, he had the company of his aunt and a family friend who he seemed to be very comfortable around. Stephen does not like being moved around much and when someone does, he cries and lets them know. He likes relaxing and being soothed by his mum or whoever is holding him.

Stephen’s mum had a few questions about how the treatment process was going and it was explained to in detail by one of our rehab nurses, George Njuru. Stephen has to wear another cast in the treatment process continues and we pray that God gets rid of any doubts his parents may have about his progress.

Leah from Kenya on Aug 14, 2017
We cannot have enough of this cute baby girl. She is a sight to behold because she cheers everyone around her up. Leah’s mum is doing well and she says that because of the uncountable number of times her daughter has had a cast, she has gotten used to it and does not cry or fuss about it.

Rahab is happy because in her opinion her daughter is a symbol of hope for her and for everyone who gets the chance to interact with her. “You could be having a bad day, but her smile will cheer you up.” - Rahab.

Leah had a cast replacement and she will continue with the correction procedure until she is completely healed.

Victor from Kenya on Aug 14, 2017
"After seeing other kids with even worse clubfoot than our son, and even seeing kids who have gone through treatment today, we are now very open minded about treatment and we are hopeful that the procedures are going to be successful and our son will be able to walk normally,” said Jackson, Victor's father.

Victor began his clubfoot correction journey today and his parents are excited about it because they know their son will have a chance to be normal like every other child!

David from Kenya on Aug 10, 2017
David’s mum managed to bring David to the hospital despite there being a problem finding a matatu (bus). She waited more than two hours at the bus terminal with no luck. When she finally got a bus, the bus fare was over the roof. But she did not hold back because she knew that her son needed to be seen because his cast had started to stain.

David doesn't like people at the hospital because he recalls feeling so much pain the first time he came here for surgery. When we saw him, he was a little grumpy from hunger, but he couldn't be given food because he's scheduled to go into theatre. Our doctor wanted to take a look under his cast and make sure everything looked as it should and we're happy to report that it did! David and his mom Martha have already been discharged for home, relieved and encouraged. Thank you for your prayers and support!

Stephen from Kenya on Aug 07, 2017
Stephen was well distracted as Mary and George were casting his leg. He kept looking at his grandma’s fingers and he might have thought about putting them in his mouth but was not allowed to. Stephen’s mum and grandma hope for a successful process and they can’t wait to tell him all about it when he grows up!

There is no better place to be than in mama’s arms! Leah seemed so comfortable and not worried by one single thing around her. Leah is so cute and we are happy to be part of her healing process!

Benson from Kenya on Aug 02, 2017
Look at Benson able to stand on his feet and smile like there is nothing in the world to worry about! Isn't that what we believers call the joy of the Lord? Benson’s joy was infectious when he came into CURE today. He had his cast removed and was fitted with AFOs. He was very excited because his his legs felt lighter and he tested them out by jumping! We are grateful for all God is doing in our kids through all of you who are praying and contributing towards their treatment!

Benedictine from Kenya on Aug 02, 2017
Friends, Benedictine is doing very well, in fact she is very soon going to stop coming to our hospital because she will be completely healed and this is some great news to hear! Today she came over for a check up and had an AFO made for her. She needs to use it for a while and we will hopefully see her again after six months. Thank you for your continued support both in prayer and in kind, may God bless you.

Sifa from Kenya on Jul 25, 2017
Yesterday we saw baby Sifa! She was back for her routine check up and as always, she had her cheer squad with her, her two favorite people, mum and dad. Sifa is growing so fast that she has already outgrown her first brace. She had it switched for a bigger one today. She has been wearing braces for eight weeks now. Her tender legs are doing well and she has now better adapted to the brace on her legs."Now, she only cries a little when we putting them on," her mother told us. We will see Sifa again in four weeks time.

David from Kenya on Jul 21, 2017
“When David gets angry, he is usually very hard to control.” - Martha. Friends, David is not in a very good mood today because he was re-casted and he probably feels less comfortable. His mum was having a hard time trying to calm him down when we saw him which in turn resulted to maybe a little frustration on mum’s side. We pray that he will get better soon and smile a little more!

Why I Support CURE

Chris is excited to join CURE for the same reason most of us are part of it: Seeing the Kingdom of God at work in kids lives. "Kids right now who can't walk, they're being carried, who can't go outside because their faces look different… they get to be kids again. Because of CURE… because of you and me and everyone else involved, kids will be kids again, and be able to walk and run.
